Welcome to IRV2. In 09, we took nine weeks and drove around the entire state of
Mi including the UP and of course the thumb. Really enjoyed the trip and was amazed at the sand dunes on lake Mi.

Hello from a fellow Michigander. Born & raised in Conway, schooled in Petoskey, job in Saginaw (retired @ 52), live near Frankenmuth, left Nov 3rd for a 6mo south west "snowbird" trip. Currently in Aransas Pass, TX for a week then on to Galveston for a month (plus cruise), then on to New Mexico, Arizona and wherever else the breeze takes us.

Love Petoskey & Caseville area,
Happy Trails

Nobody answered?. I used to live in Michigan and know the answer. Look at the back of your left hand or the palm of your right hand...

Most people are born with a thumb on both hands.....right next to the fingers!
The thumb for the UP (upper peninsula) half represents the northern most tip of Michigan if you use the 2 hand technique.

That must have been a lot of fun. It's quite a feat as MI has 2,147 mi. of shoreline, not including islands. It has 3,053 mi. including the islands. That is second only to Alaska.

It was fun. I didn't drive around every shore line in Mi. I did however drive up the West coast , over the Mackinaw Bridge ,west on 28 through the UP and East on 2 back through the UP and then down the East Coast of Mi around the thumb and down.
